Common Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

As many seniors in nursing home care suffer from dementia, abused loves ones may not always be able to communicate the abuse or neglect that they are experiencing. It falls to family members to observe any signs of abuse and speak up about suspicions of wrongdoing.

Although nursing home abuse can take many forms, here are some common signs that your loved one may not be receiving the care they deserve, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:

  • Bed sores
  • Unexplained bruises or injuries
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Poor hygiene
  • Fear and anxiety
  • Withdrawal from normal activities

Other Forms of Elder Abuse

Elder abuse isn’t just limited to nursing homes and care facilities. Sadly, the elderly are targeted in a number of ways, including:

Domestic: The neglect or abuse of an elder by a family member or caregiver, including spouses, siblings, children, or friends. This abuse often occurs in the home of the elder.

Financial: The financial exploitation of an elder through coercion, force, or by taking advantage of a senior’s dementia. This may include forged checks, scams, excessive withdrawals, changes in living wills and other legal documents, and other schemes to drain a senior’s savings, according to the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse.

Self-Neglect: When an elderly person is a threat to their own health or safety, usually as a result of dementia or illness. Self-neglect may include the senior’s refusal to provide him or himself food, water, clothing, shelter, hygiene, or medicine.

Abandonment: When a senior is purposefully abandoned by a family member or caretaker at a hospital, nursing home, or public location.
